Compliance with the Master Code under New CoR Provisions


On 1 October this year, the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) provisions under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) will be expanding.

As a result, many in the industry are now looking for an authoritative source of information that provides clarity for all parties regarding the known risks around road transport operations, and outlines best practice measures that can be put in place to minimise those risks.

For more than a year, ALC and the ATA have been working to develop an industry Master Code for heavy vehicle safety that will do just that.

The 2018 ALC & ATA Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit can help you get the inside scoop on how you’ll be able to use the Master Code to ensure compliance in your own organisation.

Our panel features those who have led the industry consultations, written the content and reviewed the Master Code in preparation for its registration.

These are the ultimate Master Code experts – and this is your chance to put your questions directly to them.

Don’t miss out! 

The 2018 Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit will be held on 5-6 September 2018 at the Melbourne Park Function Centre, and will feature both policy discussions and workshops. 

The Australian Logistics Council is pleased to welcome the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) as co-hosts of this year’s Summit, which comes at a critical time for our industry.

The Summit will be the last major industry event before the commencement of:

  • the expanded Chain of Responsibility (CoR) obligations under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), and
  • the new Registered Industry Code of Practice (Master Code) for heavy vehicle safety, jointly developed by ALC and ATA.

The Summit is held each year to raise awareness about Chain of Responsibility, and provide practical advice about steps industry participants should take to ensure high levels of safety and compliance within their own organisation.

The Summit will focus on developing practical safety solutions for heavy vehicle operators and supply chain participants. The Summit will also discuss a range of policy issues, including those raised in ALC’s position paper, Improving Heavy Vehicle Safety the Australian Way, released in April 2018.
Chain of Responsibility means all parties in a supply chain are required to implement positive actions to prevent breaches of the law. Companies cannot ‘contract out’ their CoR obligations, no matter what their industry sector or part of the supply chain.

Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities will sell quickly.
